SMSF

What is superannuation?

A superannuation is an organizational pension program created by a company for the benefit of its employees. It is also referred to as a company pension plan. Funds deposited in a superannuation account will grow, typically without any tax implications, until retirement or withdrawal.

What is SMSF

Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) are a way of saving for your retirement. The difference between an SMSF and other types of funds is that the members of an SMSF are usually also the trustees. This means the members of the SMSF run it for their benefit and are responsible for complying with the super and tax laws.

An SMSF allows a trustee to combine their super assets with up to three other members (such as partners or family members). Consolidating super accounts immediately creates a larger fund balance, which increases the fund's assets and investment opportunities – with only one set of fees.
